FO Friday 10.11.17

A thought occurs (don’t worry, I’m sitting down) – I don’t think I showed you the finished doily I was working on, did I?

Here you go!

This was a commission from a friend at choir who saw me crocheting my star blanket during rehearsals. He asked for something similar to go on his television unit, gave me some vague ideas about colours, and let me get on with in my own time.

The one issue I had is that his TV unit is rectangular, and he didn’t want the doily hanging over the edges, so a circular star blanket pattern wasn’t going to work. I did have a faff around with Google trying to find some patterns for oval doilies, but it only seemed to give me charts (which I couldn’t read at the time) or photos.

So instead I took the star blanket pattern and tweaked it a bit.

It kind of worked, but in hindsight I should have gone even further and made the beginning longer and thinner. I had to do some wizardry with singles and trebles towards the end because I realised if I kept going with double crochet all round, it would have been too long.

I sent him a photo and told him the price and he was happy with both, hooray! So now all that’s left to do is hand it over and get the money. My favourite part 😉

How’s everyone’s week been? Got any FOs to share? Let me know in the comments!
